Market data

  • As of January 2020, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Combined Heat and Power Installation Database counted 4,571 CHP
  • In the US, IDEA reported there are 386 college/ university district energy systems (54% of all US DE systems reported by IDEA), and in Canada there are 21 college/ university district energy systems (21% of all Canadian DE systems reported by IDEA)
  • According to IDEA, in 2012, a total of ~5.45 billion sqft of district heating installed capacity in the U.S. existed and ~1.87 billion sqft of district cooling. IDEA also projected a yearly increase in hot water heating in the U.S. of 0.4% (2013-2020) then +6.5%/yr (2021-2030), +5.5%/yr (2031-2040), and +4%/yr (2041-2050). Then on district cooling, +1.2% (2021–2030), +1.7% (2031–2040) and +2.2% (2041-2050)
  • Several US colleges have set aggressive and ambitious climate goals which include increasing their renewable energy fraction. For example, Penn, Yale and Brown all are aiming to achieve carbon neutral before 2050, and Dartmouth, Columbia and Massachusetts are targeting a 80% reduction in GHGs before 2050. With these carbon targets fast approaching, North American companies are actively planning, designing, partnering, constructing, and commissioning a wide range of innovative energy and environmental technologies for institutions across USA and Canada.
